WHAT IS TREKKING ? If you need to see some popular Trekking Route Maps Click Here

Trekking is walking at your own pace through well established trails whereby you will enjoy Nature and people in the remote mountain villages. There will be a "TREKKING GUIDE" to lead you the way and necessary "PORTER" to carry some of your packs which generates employment opportunity to the rural people under poverty line.

"OUR PEOPLE WHO SERVE YOU IN YOUR TREKKING, ARE WELL TRAINED FOR ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION AND WELL VERSED WITH CULTURE, NATURE, RELIGION, ETHNICITY AND OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT NEPAL SO TREKKING WITH US IS A DIFFERENCE."

Types of Trekking:
There are 3 types of Trekking programs.

Organized camp trekking:
In this trek you will be catered by a whole crew of staffs, you will be allowed to stay overnight in tented camps,
A comfort organized trek has sleeping tents, dining tents, toilet tents etc. and the crew are very much flexible and hospitable.
Tea- House Trekking:
A Tea- House Trek means the trekkers are provided lodging facilities in the village guest-houses at night. This way the trekkers enjoy being with ethnic villagers in remote areas, their hospitality and their culture.
This way of trekking is now-a-days very popular in some of the conventional Trekking routes. It is good and economical, which is good that the Tourist's money goes directly to different people in different remote places.
Tea- Houses are available only in some trekking areas.

This is the best way of TREKKING. Click to view some popular Trekking Routes

Mixed or Combined Trekking:
A Tea- House Trek will be provided in lodging facilities in the village guest-houses in the lower areas while full organized trekking in Camps will be provided in upper areas . This way the trekkers enjoy both being with ethnic villagers, their hospitality and their culture in lower areas. While where no Tea-House lodges are possible, our eco-friendly crew is there to serve you in the higher altitude. This is being popular for certain personalized trekking routes where tea houses facilities are in the conventional routes and the higher routes have no such facilities.

Quality of Trekking

1. Standard Trekking :
These types are specially tailor-made trekking program according to the taste of the clients.

2. Normal Conventional Trekking:
These programs are based upon fixed trekking trails, passing through mountain villages simultaneously experiencing the Nature and near the Himalayas.

3. Tough Trekking:
Tough Treks are of longer duration through rugged trails gradually rising to very high altitudes and some may consist Trekking Peaks around 6000 Meters.

We can make personalized itinerary for interested individuals or groups. However, here we have given some example "ITINERARIES"  for your planning.
